Amalgam ‘Mercury’ fillings banned in Europe!

Dentists across Europe must stop using toxic amalgam fillings which contain mercury, a known neurotoxin and carcinogen, in pregnant and nursing women and children under the age of 15 in 2018.

This is a huge milestone in the fight to put people before profits. For far too long we’ve collectively turned a blind eye and allowed companies and industries to make decisions that injure people’s health just to make a quick buck.

The ban will affect dentists in all the 28 member countries of the EU and comes into effect in July 2017.  Whilst the ban needs to be officially ratified, this is expected to be a formality as the European Commission, the European Council and the European Parliament have already agreed to it.

Health agencies in each of the member countries must also submit plans as to how they will be reducing the use of amalgam fillings in the rest of the population by the following year, 2019.

This doesn’t come a moment too soon and is a triumph for consumer groups who have played a major role in the six-year consultation period – and a “blow” to the dental associations that still, incredibly, maintain their fixed position that amalgam fillings are safe.

Amalgam fillings are a mix of silver, tin and copper in liquid or elemental mercury, and have been used by dentists for more than 150 years because the material is inexpensive and pliable.

Dental associations have maintained their position that mercury is safe, despite all the evidence to the contrary, and they aslo say that mercury – which makes up around half the filling – is “locked in” and therefore can’t escape.

WDDTY revealed that mercury does escape, and can damage our brain, heart, kidneys, lungs and immune system because the gut converts the elemental mercury into methyl mercury — its most lethal form!
